Another Meal Using your Cauliflower Rice – Cauliflower Pizza Crust

Image

This was so good! I’m totally hooked. Healthy too! You can put whatever toppings you like on it. I put roasted eggplant, oven dried tomatoes, green onions and fresh mozarella with a little balsamic vinegar drizzled over after baking. I almost ate the whole dang pizza myself. It was that good and almost guilt free.

Cauliflower Pizza Crust with Eggplant, fresh Mozzarella, and Oven Dried Tomatoes

Preheat oven to 400

1 batch of cauliflower rice (Big tip: put “rice” in a thin cloth and squeeze out all the excess water) This helps so crust isn’t soggy.

1 egg

1/3c. goat cheese

1t. oregano dried

1/4 t. salt

Mix altogether until well combined and spread out on a parchment lined baking pan. Press the dough into a crust about 1/3″ thick making edges a little thicker.

Bake for 35-40 minutes until golden brown around edges and spots through out rest.

Put on the toppings.

Fresh Mozzarella cheese

2 green onions sliced

Half an eggplant diced 1 inch cubes and sprnkled lightly with salt

Mix 2T. olive oil, 1 T. cider vinegar, 1T, agave nectar, 2 Garlic cloves chopped, 1/4. t. cumin, 1/2 t. smoked paprika, and a sqeeze of lemon juice

Pour mixture over eggplant and roast at 400 for 20 – 30 minutes or until tender.

Oven dried roasted tomoatoes

balsamic vinegar

I put on a thin layer of tomato pizza sauce then I layered slices of mozzarella cheese, the roasted eggplant, the green onions, the oven dried tomatoes and then put back in the oven for 10 minutes or until cheese is melted.

Slice and Serve.
